I don’t know if I’ve been living under a rock or something but first I didn’t know that Future Sound of London was still going as an electronic band and then now I found out on accident that Woob is back. Woob is back?! But who is Woob, you ask?
If you started listening to ambient on the 00’s chances are you don’t know about a label called em:t, one of the pioneers of this type of music during the 90’s (and still active). Woob released two albums and a lot of tracks with em:t but one them, Woob 1194, is considered one of the milestones of the ambient genre (and works fine even nowadays). It was a long time since his last release so that explain my surprise when I found “Repurpose” when browsing through bandcamp.
It’s not made entirely of new tracks (some remixes and remakes) and there are some fillers but believe me when I say it’s high quality stuff. Pure cinematic and epic ambient music tending more to the dark side of the force. The use of real instruments (mostly ethnic) conjures a pretty intense ritual organic atmosphere. And the price… So cheap!! It is worth for the last two tracks alone. What are you waiting for?
